Reducing Waste Advice For July
Each month Tammi, our clean ocean campaigner, brings you a new and interesting advice to reduce waste & help protect the ocean in your everyday life. Here is the seventh tip for 2021:
Hello Seaside Dreamers,
The team at Ocean Helper have been enjoying the sunshine here is sunny Cornwall. It certainly makes my morning litter picks much more enjoyable, better to be pulling litter out of hedges in the sun rather than in the rain!
Last month we encouraged you to switch to beeswax wraps for your kitchen, they remove the need for clingfilm/ plastic wrap and come in a range of beautiful colours. We recommended the Beeswax Wraps Co for their amazing, high quality beeswax wraps that you can check out here.
This month, as it is Plastic Free July, we wanted to support a fantastic eco friendly store, WAKEcups. Global WAKEcup is a zero waste & reusables brand with a mission to end single use plastic pollution for good. They have a fantastic range of eco friendly products for you to choose from PLUS they donate 10% of all profits to the Marine Conservation Society. If you are looking for something with a personal touch you can get a lot of their amazing items personalised, click here to check out what you can personalise.

What's on July 2021 - Ocean Helper
Thanks to your support in June we were able to donate over $45 to Wild Orca to support their work in protecting the southern resident orcas from extinction.
This month we celebrate Plastic Free July by working hard to promote plastic free options and encouraging those around us to look at their waste, and work to be more sustainable. July is also the host of Shark Awareness Day, which is why we have chosen to once again support Shark Trust! Learn more about them here.
Naturally we kicked off July with an article about Plastic Free July and how you can take part whether you are a beginner or advanced. Then we shared some important facts about plastic pollution that everyone should know or be aware of in 10 Shocking Facts About Plastic Pollution.
Coming up this month we are going to be sharing some petitions, one regarding plastic waste and another about sharks. We also have a number of awareness days coming up, including Shark Awareness Day on the 14th, Albatross & Ice Cream Day on the 19th, Hammock day on the 22nd and Mangrove Day on the 26th. Not only that but on the 28th we will be celebrating 5 years of Ocean Helper!
If you have a petition to share to support ocean conservation and marine wildlife protection, let us know and we would be happy to share or promote it! You can contact us either on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or via email directly - firstname.lastname@example.org
